In the final stage of recovery, Nino says he believes he will reach the final
Nino suffered a strain in the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee when he was working with the Brazilian national team in Data FIFA, and he has not played since October 8. It usually takes a month to recover from the injury, but the Tri-Color Medical Department was able to speed up the process. The defender returned to training last Saturday with those who did not travel to face Atletico MG, and was returned to the main group on Monday.
Felipe Melo, in turn, had a milder problem: he felt a tingling sensation in his thigh last Wednesday and left the field in the first half of the match against Goias at the Estadio Raulino de Oliveira. The defender, who has also been dealing with pain in his left knee all season, has been recovering the past few days and training normally on Monday at CT.
